Threads like this are way overpopulated with people who have issues. And they post several times as they seek help in identifying the issue, trying various fixes, discussing whether it can be fixed with a firmware update, discussing the issue with others who have the same problem, etc. OTOH, guys like myself post once that my projector is awesome and I don't see a single issue. What should all those who are happy with their units do? Post once a day saying how great their projectors are to balance out the number of good and problematic posts to try to reflect what is happening in the real world?
The same thing can be seen on the OLED threads. Lots of people posting about issues because when you have an issue, that's what you need to do. People don't post when everything is great, or at least they rarely post such things in comparison to problems. At one point there was a thread in the OLED forum asking people if they liked their set, and the responses were overwhelming from people who just loved their OLED.
I know you and others know all this, but maybe it bears repeating. Threads like this are a breeding ground for issues and problems, and I think they cause people to have concerns and worries far out of proportion to the likelihood of having a serious problem -- and the worries and concerns also seem far out of proportion given the efforts JVC seems to be making to fix issues. I mean, I think that's the case. I suppose it could be the case that this projector has some serious issues, and some of us were just lucky, and JVC is on its last legs, or whatever horror scenario one can conjure up in one's imagination is actually true. I mean, anything is possible, I suppose. It just seems that is a rather draconian viewpoint, and it doesn't seem to me that there is a reasonably basis to reach that conclusion based on some people coming to this thread for help when they have an issue.
That's just my $.02.
